Thanksgiving 2014

Thanksgiving 2014 was such a great holiday for us! We got to not only spend it with our little Arizona family, but we also got to see our good friends, Chris & Ainara, who flew into Tucson from Seattle, to visit Chris's parents.

Well start off with Thanksgiving day.  We decided to take it easy, we slept in and just hung out at around the house, until I got started on dinner.  I love cooking, especially for family & friends.  What was on our Thanksgiving dinner menu?  Turkey, Mashed potatoes & gravy, bacon wrapped asparagus, mac & cheese, and green bean casserole. It was my 1st time making the bacon wrapped asparagus & green bean casserole, and they both turned out great, thank goodness! lol.  I was also very happy that I was able to find 90% of our dinner ingredients at Trader Joe's :P

Here are some pics from Thanksgiving:

After dinner & clean up, we all headed outside for a little bonfire

Friday evening, Jon and I made our way to Tucson to spend the weekend with Chris & Ainara and Chris's parents.   We stayed with them until Sunday afternoon.  Friday, we all just hung out at their house, enjoyed some pizza and drinks.  Saturday, the boys headed to the golf course, and us girls went out to do some shopping and lunch & drinks.

When we all got back to the Sherwoods house, the boys hung out in the pool.  Then we all got ready for the evening festivities, FOOTBALL!!! Our college teams were playing their rivals, 1st up, with our Oregon Ducks & Oregon Beavers, of course, the ducks dominated and did a great job :)  Then it was time for the Washington State Cougars & Washington Huskies (boo)…. The cougs did not do so well, and got beat by the Huskies, but it was still a great night and a fun night of football.
Ainara and I, we captioned this photo "Bisco Wives" since our husbands work together :)

The whole gang watching football.  Chris's dad is in the 3rd seat, and his mom is next to Jon.  The other couple are good friends with Chris's parents. 
Go Cougs & Go Ducks! 
We had such a great holiday weekend, it was great to catch up with our friends.  And Tucson is not a bad place, I love how cute it is :)
